Everbridge Achieves U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency Authorization for Cloud Services
October 15, 2018 – Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety software applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced the Company has received a Provisional Authorization (PA) for Impact Level 2 from the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the IT combat support organization of the Department of Defense (DoD). This authorization enables all DoD missions and agencies to leverage the Everbridge Suite of solutions, including Mass Notification, Incident Communications and IT Alerting, to safeguard military personnel, civilians, and contractors, as well as defense facilities and assets, at home and abroad.
The PA granted by DISA to Everbridge will enable DoD agencies the opportunity to ultimately streamline their authorizations of Everbridge’s cloud-based suite of solutions by leveraging the thorough process DISA followed. In addition, Everbridge received FedRAMP authorization in July of this year, passing the rigorous security and risk management review process required to offer its solutions to other federal agencies.
“With DISA and FedRAMP authorization, the Everbridge Suite of solutions is now certified for use by both the civilian and military areas of the Federal government,” said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. “This latest authorization provides Department of Defense agencies with the opportunity to embrace our cloud-based Critical Event Management platform to rapidly respond to – and even avoid – sudden, unexpected disruptions, while protecting those who serve our nation.”
In addition to the Department of Defense, Everbridge currently supports the operational resilience needs of more than 40 federal agencies including the Department of Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Social Security Administration.
The Department of Defense (DoD) Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG) provides a standardized assessment and authorization process for cloud service providers to gain a DoD provisional authorization, so that they can serve DoD customers. The provisional authorization from DISA provides a reusable certification that attests to Everbridge’s compliance with DoD standards, reducing the time necessary for a DoD mission owner to assess and authorize one of their systems for operation with Everbridge.
For more information about the SRG, including the full definition of the security control baselines defined for Levels 2, see the Information Assurance Support Environment (IASE) DoD Cloud Computing Security webpage.
